Cloud Computing Planning

You need to understand the business requirements before deploying applications to cloud. Then there are the things that we will consider:

  • Data Security and Privacy Requirement
  • Budget Requirements
  • Type of cloud - public, private or hybrid
  • Data backup requirements
  • Training requirements
  • Dashboard and reporting requirements
  • Client access requirements
  • Data export requirements

To meet both of these criteria, well-compiled preparation is necessary. In this tutorial, we will discuss the different preparation processes that a organization will conduct before moving the whole enterprise to cloud.

Strategy Phase

We are analyzing the strategic experiences that society might face during this phase. This analysis is performed in two steps:

  • The Cloud Value proposition
  • The Plan for Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing Value Proposition

In this, when applying cloud computing mode, we analyze the factors influencing customers and target the key problems they want to solve. The main considerations are:

  • Simplification of IT management
  • Reduction of the operating and maintenance expenses
  • Innovation in business mode
  • Low Price Hosting Outsourcing
  • Excellent value efficiency management outsourcing.

All of the above review helps to improve future decision taking.

Cloud Computing Strategy Planning

Establishment of the strategy is focused on the result of review of the above step. A strategy document is prepared in this step according to the conditions that a customer might face when applying cloud computing mode.

Planning Phase

This step conducts cloud application issue and risk analysis to assure customers that cloud computing fulfills their business objectives successfully. This phase comprises the following steps in planning:

  • Developing Company Architecture
  • IT Development in Architecture
  • Standard of service Development requirements

Business Architecture Development

In this step we consider the risks from a market perspective that may be generated by the cloud computing application.

IT Architecture Development

Throughout this step, we define applications to support business processes and the technologies needed to support business applications and data systems.

Requirements on Quality of Service Development

Service quality relates to non-functional specifications such as efficiency, safety, recovery, etc .. Applying cloud computing mode success depends on those non-functional factors.

Transformation Plan Development

Throughout this step, we are trying to formulate all kinds of plans required to turn current company into cloud computing modes.

Deployment Phase

Each phase focuses on the processes described above. This requires two steps below:

  • Select Provider for Cloud computing
  • Maintenance and knowledge

Selecting Cloud Computing Provider

This step entails selecting a cloud platform based on the Service Level Agreement ( SLA), which specifies the quality of support that the vendor should be providing.

Maintenance and Technical Service

Cloud provider provides maintenance and Technical Services. They have to assure the quality of the services.
